At the end of my Rees hike, I ended up meeting Shanye and Tojo at the Hobo Jungle, which is basically at the bottom of Rees Peak. Which was good because I was able to drink a cooler full of beer on the peak and not worry about anything but getting down the hill and falling into bed. :y:

Sunday Lee showed up just as the eggs and bacon were finished cooking and LL followed a few minutes later. So we headed to the crag! I was weak and got caught on an angle on what should have been an easy 5.8, but I just didn't like making the turn. The rope was way off to the side and despite directional anchors, I felt like a fall would have me swinging like a pendulum across the face of the rock. Eventually I just got tired and decided not to keep the others waiting.

I would try another route later, but for the most part it was just a lazy day for me. It was fun watching the others make some impressive climbs, and fotg kicked butt for a first timer. Trying a 10b/c later in the day, he got stopped short of the top. Apparently climbing takes technique and not just strength! :o (At least he has one of them ... I have neither! :lol: )

One of the other climbers there who was paying attention delivered what I thought was a very good quote: "When you can't muscle through it ... that's when you learn how to climb."

Fun day. I need to get to PRG and refresh so that these trips will be more fun.
